For today’s Floral Friday I’m sharing two very simple cards made with the Flowing Flowers stamp set, which has beautiful big flower images perfect for covering your whole card.
This first card uses Highland Heather and Soft Succulent inkpads to stamp the flowers with.
The second one was done with Stampin’ Markers brushed on the stamps and gives you a much bolder image. Which do you prefer?
The sentiments for both cards were stamped on diecuts from the Tasteful Labels Dies which have now unfortunately sold out. For an alternative you could use the labels in the Potted Succulents or Seasonal Labels Dies. In the new catalogue there is also a die set called All That which would also work.
Here are three ideas for you using the All Together Designer Paper all using the pattern with the row of hands.
For this first card I used most of the new Stampin’ Blends skin tone colours to colour the hands and then added the Here For You die onto some vellum just to help it stand out from the background of hands.
This second card uses the same layout but I’ve swapped the skin tones for a rainbow of hands in Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss.
My third card was a happy accident as when I turned the rainbow hands sheet over to adhered to the Basic Black base I loved what I found…so made that into a card too!
This card is my favourite and think it shows the more you create the more the creative ideas flow.
There are plenty of other great designs in the All Togther Designer Paper which is fast becoming one of my favourites to reach for.
Today I’m sharing a little inspiration using the Catching Butterflies stamp set which is another free stamp available during Sale-A-Bration. This stamp set is perfect for little girls.
I’ve paired the stamped image of the girl with two dies from the Nature’s Thoughts set. I love the detail in the white matt die and those little Bermuda Bay butterflies just finish the card off perfectly.
Here are a couple my ideas using this set from the Stampin’ Up! concept ideas, these images can be found on page 6 of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.
This simple card has used our watercolour pencils dry to colour in the girl and I love the mix of Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo for the butterflies.
I love the mix of Polished Pink and Daffodil Delight on this card to create the blended background for the butterflies. This is a combination I need to try. I also love how the Black Matt Dots really add a pop to the card.
Hope you enjoyed these ideas for using the Catching Butterflies stamp set. For more ideas keep following the blog or check out my Catching Butterflies Pintrest Board which is full of inspiration.
Color & Contour is one bundle which I bought more for the dies as I love a die which creates a matt for me to work with and who doesn’t love things with a scalloped edge? Win, win! So I focused just on the stamp set and here’s what I created:
I’ve used a mix of Pale Papaya, Polished Pink and Soft Succulent from the 21-23 In-colours, which are definitley my favourite collection. Stampin’ Up! please please don’t retire these colours I love them.
One thinng that makes the Color and Contour stamp set for me is the sentiments I love when they contain a mix of scripty with capitals. I’d love it if we had a complimetary birthday set in the same font.
From the stamping you can see I didn’t get the outlines to match up with the middle parts but I think this adds more depth to the card and makes the card realistic.
